The Thorens TD 125 MK II is the high-end classic model from the early 1970s. It is a top quality instrument which will deliver incomparable musical performance and protect your records for years to come.

The player’s plinth is made from Oak wood. The tree is gently processed and oiled with special furniture oil. The bottom of the plinth, made of 21 mm plywood, additionally damps parasitic resonances and vibrations without losing the natural harmonic richness of an analogue instrument. The whole structure is carried by 3 height adjustable spike foots with locknuts for better stability. These spikes enable to isolate the equipment from external vibrations in the environment.

The metal sub-chassis were damped with a special acoustic material. This removes the specific metallic tinkle and also adjusts the tonal balance to give a natural sound. The top surface is painted in black matte lacquer.

The platter bearing was cleaned of all the old oil and grease, and then oiled again with high-quality oil especially recommended for this player’s bearing. The result of the bearing restoration is a more stable and smooth rotation and less mechanical noise.

The rubber drive belt was meticulously cleaned using only hot water and soap avoiding the use of any solvent which would have altered the elasticity of the rubber.

The player is upgraded with legendary “Linn Basik LV X” tonearm. It was selected in an already good condition and restored.

The turntable is not equipped with a phono cartridge but it’s possible to install any. We would recommend something like Nagaoka MP 150 (around €300), Ortofon Blue (around €180) or Bronze (around €300), Audio Technica At 150 MLX  (around €350). Installation and tuning are free of charge, and you can also just send us your cartridge.

The old cables were replaced with new audiophile high-quality cables and gold plated RCA plugs. All of the solderings was done using audiophile silver solder WBT-0820 and flux X-M3 (no traces of adulterated alcohol).

The main platter disc is polished in matte and painted with lacquer to prevent tarnishing.

The small platter disc is made from metal and has a bigger bearing shaft diameter (then the usual small patter discs by Thorens 146, 160).

The new acrylic dust cover on hinges can be installed for additional €170.

The suspended sub-chassis will be tuned for use both with or without a stabilizer. The fully-loaded sub-chassis (platter, slipmat, vinyl and stabilizer) must be parallel to the supporting chassis. The stabilizer from the pictures cost an additional €50. You can also tell us your stabilizer weight and we will tune the sub-chassis for free.

The complete package includes digital scales (to adjust the cartridge tracking force), spirit level (to adjust the turntable level) and instructions for player and tonearm adjustment and tuning.

The shipping is not included. We will pack the turntable very carefully and securely, as if it were a crystal vase.
